Wanda loved music and was blessed with an amazing singing voice, which she gladly shared with others. Her ability was discovered in her youth. Wanda sang throughout her life. She had many passions — music, her family, entertaining and playing bridge.

She attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. She was a Messiah soloist and was chosen to be in the Nordic Choir — a highly regarded choir reserved for select voices. She also had private singing lessons.
